It's that time again, the moment when your week starts rolling a little more smoothly: The Top 5 Items To Drop This Week. If you're unfamiliar with the routine, each Monday we pick out our 5 favourite items to land on site that week. Whether it’s a pair of luxury sneakers or designer furniture, we like to make our selections as eclectic as possible to ensure that there’s something for everyone.
Last week our round up had a distinctly seasonal direction – we were excited by the weather, sure – with products ranging from A Day’s March shirts to Polaroid Originals cameras and Floyd suitcases. This week, instead of gearing you up for days outside in the sunshine, we're looking to the interior and how to add a new angle to your home. Classic brands like Bang & Olufsen are complemented by new arrivals like Nuts & Woods to give a full display of what's to come at OPUMO.
Menu’s JWDA Pendant is the king of pendants, featuring a delicately rounded lamp and shining brass base complete with a dimmer switch. The design, by Jonas Wagell, is inspired by the shapes of traditional oil lamps. Having been reduced to the absolute essentials, this pendant exudes a sense of refinement and class.
Coming in a set of three holders, Kristina Dam’s Square Candlestick Holders can be placed alone or together to form an interactive relationship. The black marble block contrasts the brass holder in tasteful minimalism, elevating the practical item to a design object that looks as good with a candle as it does completely empty.
Nuts & Woods has come a long way in a short time, beginning as a home project. From making personal furniture to selling to friends and finally being used in commercial and residential projects the world over, Philipp Roessler's designs have come a long way. Retaining the stripped-back design and rawness that made them popular initially, this Nuts & Woods Industrial Marble Shelf is practical and great-looking.
Embodying the creative energy of New York in the 80s, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work is characterised by a visual and emotional rawness. With the help of Taschen, you can now get up-close and personal with Basquiat’s bold work. Featuring texts by editor Hans Werner Holzwarth and curator and art historian Eleanor Nairne, this book is perfect as an entry-point or to enrich what you may already know about one of the world’s most famous artists.
As we have come to expect from Bang & Olufsen, the Beoplay P6 Portable Speaker is a front runner in the world of wireless portable speakers. Catering not only to the visuals, though the minimalist pearl blasted aluminium grill looks perfect, the device sounds amazing too. Featuring True360 B&O Signature Sound and 16 hours play time per charge, this mini machine has the power to sustain any event.
